Imperium is the first sequel the literary world knows to Spengler's monumental The Decline of the West. In fact, the author does more than even Spengler attempted – he defines and creates the pathology of culture in all of its infinitely urgent importance, including the discipline of cultural vitalism.
Imperium rejects the parched fossils of the 19th century thought – Marx, Freud, the scientific-mechanical world outlook which fails to satisfy the organically vital realities of politics.
It is probably the first book to advocate and predict European unification in terms other than the crassly materialistic. It is also the first comprehensive and profoundly constructive alternative to the Marxist-Liberal degeneracy surrounding us.
Imperium is written with a dramatic style and flair for expression seldom encountered even in novels.
Every readear will hardly agree with everything in Imperium, yet every reader will find his thought horizons expanded, his vision of history refreshed and that of the future cleared up.
